Nick Redfern recently posted something on night terrors put together by Tim Binnall. Interesting reading, but there was a curious omission. Binnall’s work (at least in this installment) neglects to mention the major scholarly work on night terrors and its relation to sleep paralysis and “otherworldly” visitations: The Terror That Comes in the Night (Publications of the American Folklore Society New Series), by David J. Hufford.
For those who may have curled up by the fire at some point to read Alien Discussions: Proceedings of the Abduction Study Conference Held at M.I.T. Cambridge, Ma., Hufford’s name will be familiar. He delivered a paper at the conference entitled, “Awakening Paralyzed in the Presence of a Strange ‘Visitor’.”
People on all sides of the abduction phenomenon ought to pay closer attention to Hufford’s work.
